The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has commended the Electoral Commission (EC) for exhibiting what he termed a high level of professional neutrality in conducting the ongoing registration exercise.
He said the maturity the Electoral Commission has displayed in the exercise has flawed the baseless and untenable noises the NDC made about the Electoral Commission’s decision to exclude the birth certificate as prerequisite material for the voters’ registration because it will disenfranchise others.
John Boadu disclosed this during his visit to the Bono region to inspect the ongoing registration, accompanying him were Jennifer Oforiwaa Queen, Yaw Preko, Maame Yaa Achamaa all deputy national communications directors, the Bono regional chairman Kwame Baffoe Abronye Dc and party executives.
In the region, they visited Wenchi to interact with the Queen Mother, Chief Iman, and the family of the late Kwame Saara Mensa who was the Research and Elections Officer, registration centres in Banda, Bui, and Jaman North to ascertain the progress of the ongoing registration exercise.
According to John Boadu, looking at how successful the exercise has become shows that the accusations and allegations were deliberate ploys by opposition NDC to sabotage the electoral commission.
He said the NDC is indulging in several electoral malpractices in the ongoing nationwide registration exercise which includes busing of people from the neighboring countries saying the NPP will resist any attempts by the NDC to turn the upcoming elections into a West African one.
He, therefore, charged NPP supporters across the country to engage themselves massively in the ongoing registration exercise because victory lies ahead for President Akufo-Addo in the general elections.
